  1. Happy Thursday everyone! If you’ve done any amount of fishing, you know just how frustrating a tangled reel can be. Most of the time it can be fixed in a jiffy — a few targeted snips, a quick rethreading of the line and you’re generally good to go. But if time isn’t on your side, and even worse, if you have young children anxiously waiting to get their lines in the water, then the process can feel like it takes an eternity. The gentleman in today’s cartoon looks like he’s finally had enough, and is ready to dispose of his reoccurring headache once and for all. I wonder if he snapped his pole out of frustration, or did he do so to fit it in the garbage can?

    There weren’t any new clue words this morning, but three of the anagrams just happened to be. The only one we’ve definitely seen before was TESLET. I thought DANCIR was a mighty fine scramble. Since it’s the only one I didn’t see straight away, I’ll go ahead and make it my pick for today’s hardest anagram.

    Interesting take on a fishing cartoon. It looks like our angler may have discovered the malfunctioning rod and reel before trekking off to his lucky spot, but there’s no real way of knowing for sure. We don’t see the extra rods he mentioned, but there looks to be a tackle box with extra fishing line sitting on his workbench. There’s also an old coffee can on the shelf beneath it. His wife can be seen holding five stems and some pruning sheers. Her pith-style hat looks like it’ll provide plenty of shade for the yard work she’s tending to. My favorite detail was the fish on the gentleman’s trucker hat. It looks to be leaping out of the water in an attempt to catch a fly!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11 letters. Five of them were vowels and six were consonants. The layout disguised the answer quite nicely, but I picked up on the clue of the broken rod in the cartoon and everything sort of fell neatly into place. I always enjoy when that happens. Have a terrific Thursday everyone, and keep Jumbling!

  3. This was a fun one. I’ve done a lot of fishing, mostly in Alaska and Mexico. It’s always fun and challenging as was today’s J. I don’t recall casting a rod aside but I did mistakenly cast one off a boat while deep sea fishing…. Embarrassing!!!
    The only anagram that slowed me down was RANCID. Solution was quick. All told a good day and a nice Jumble.
    What will Friday bring us?
    Mig, having fun

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. 🎣 CAST YOUR FATE TO THE BIN? 🎣

    🎣 He loved to fish, he’d go DAILY, if life would just allow,
    But of course there’s reality, he’d SETTLE here and now…
    His wife would sometimes give him grief…he told her come along,
    But smells of fish to her RANCID…she’d not STAND it for long…
    And now this fishing pole of his had def seen better days,
    It did him well for quite a while, but now it shows it’s frays
    And if he’s going to catch some fish…to work within the tide…
    This rod and reel will never do…so he CAST IT ASIDE…🎣 🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. 🗞 He couldn’t STAND for his DAILY paper to be wet and RANCID, oft times causing him to CAST IT ASIDE, so he cancelled his subscription, refusing to SETTLE for such haphazard deliveries..🗞

    🧹 The broom that she used DAILY, in the laundry room did STAND,
    But yesterday she grabbed it, and felt things were out of hand…
    It had a smell so RANCID, that it shocked her for a sec..
    For this she’d never SETTLE, and she wondered “What the heck”?
    She ran to buy a new one, for to her a matter of pride…
    Was having things be spotless…This old broom? CAST IT ASIDE!🧹

  6. Words flowed pretty easy today! Then came IT, CAST then ASIDE. Have a good one!

    • For a brief moment I thought the double S’s would lead to TOSS…..

      GL with the Sudoku! I haven’t even looked at mine yet. 🙂

      • Sudoku pretty solvable (at 3 stars) as Jumble was today! Not nearly as easy and quick though! I don’t know if you happen to get the TV Guides that also come in the newspaper, once a week? ……. Those things can be “killer” Sudokus! 😆😆

  7. Like catching fish in a barrel today. Might Dave and Jeff be trying to lure us into a false sense of security?. This Daily brainteaser is never Rancid, helps Settle me down and I don’t Stand for anything less. I could never Cast It Aside. Spring still trying to make up its mind here on the Great Plains. Be safe.

    • We’re getting a Nor’easter tonight, OO. 2-4” of fun is on tap! I won’t be digging out the shovels for this one though. I’m going to let the sun do all the heavy lifting. Be well. 🙂

  8. Good morning. This is the easiest so far this week. The entire jumble was a breeze and the cartoon answer was a home run. Loved the solution. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. Definitely the easiest Jumble this week.A quick solve on the anagrams and cartoon solution,even though,as I’ve said before,I’ve never gone fishing.I grew up in the inner city of Cleveland Ohio,and despite being on the Lake Erie coast,we never went fishing.We were avid baseball fans and golfers,but not fishermen.

  10. Hi all – Likewise, words and solution were all easy.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Don’t leave the olive oil out to STAND on the windowsill DAILY to SETTLE too long or it might turn RANCID.”

  11. Mondays have never been my favourite day except on long weekends safe with Jumble. Some Jumbles are easier to solve than those on Mondays and this is one of them. Looked at the cartoon then the letters a few times when I saw CAS… bingo!!!

  12. Reeled it right in today. My Dad was an avid fisherman. The first time he took my husband fishing he told him “You have to think like a fish” – guess Daddy was on to something because he rarely came home without a limit – not the case for my husband. Wishing all of you a good Thursday.
